Rarefied to Miss George Moore Stakes 2011

Topweight for the 2011 George Moore Stakes at Doomben this Saturday, the Peter Snowden-trained Rarefied will not be accepted for the Brisbane black-type, instead being saved for a Sydney Listed showdown the following weekend.


Rarefied will bypass the George Moore Stakes in favour of a Sydney black-type on Saturday week

The classy Commands five-year-old was last seen finishing a brave second beaten just a length by Melbourne mare Ortensia in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Perth’s Ascot Racecourse on November 19.

It was Rarefied’s third second place finish for the season following on from a first-up runner-up position in the Listed Lightning Handicap (1100m) at Randwick and a devastatingly close second to Sister Madly in the Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Derby Day.

Original plans to take Rarefied to Brisbane for the Doomben Summer Series opener, the $200,000 Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m), have since been shelved.

Snowden said Rarefied would be rested another week and that the $100,000 Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) at Warwick Farm on December 17 was the gelding’s new next-up target.

With Rarefied, who was allocated 58kg, out of contention, Darryl Hansen’s Essington on 57.5kg becomes the new topweight in the George Moore Stakes.

Originally in doubt of a start, last-start Keith Noud Quality third placgetter Essington has been confirmed as a definite runner after their trainer was granted a further stay of proceedings against a six-month disqualification for charges relating to a positive swab.

“I’m rapt with the decision and I’ve freshened up Essington for this race,” Hansen said on Tuesday.

The official 2011 George Moore Stakes final field is due out shortly with Races.com.au to publish the list of acceptors and barriers.
